£210,000-a-week striker ready to sign new contract with Man United

Edinson Cavani is enjoying his time at Man United and is reportedly open to sitting down with club officials to discuss a potential extension.

Eyebrows were raised when the Red Devils landed Uruguay international on a free transfer towards the end of the summer window considering the centre-forward’s age and the fact he went seven months without play a single game for the Parisians before arriving at Theatre of Dreams.

But Edinson has proven himself to be a valuable addition to the Norwegian manager’s squad and contributed seven goals in 24 games before being sidelined with a muscle injury which ruled him out of Man United’s last four matches.

Cavani will be desperate to make his comeback this evening versus Crystal Palace after returning to full training, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men looking to close the enormous 15-point gap between themselves and Man City at the top of the PL table.

Red Devils will make a decision over the 34-year-old striker’s future in the coming weeks and months but the footballer, who put pen to paper on a one-year contract last October, is open to the prospect of extending his remain in the north west.

The Uruguayan centre-forward is happy with life at Man United and is relishing the opportunity to prove himself all over again in a new league and a new country. However, it will ultimately depend on both sides’ financial demands and what the ex-PSG and Napoli centre-forward wants from his remaining years at the top of the game.
